M. Kreck, An extension of the results of Browder, Novikov and Wall about surgery on compact manifolds, preprint Mainz (1985).

This manuscript was written in Mainz in 1985 and its main results were used by several researchers although it was not ever published. The main results appeared in [Kreck1999] where the following is written in the introduction (p. 710) (note that [Kr3] refers to the Mainz pre-print, the other references also are from the bibliography of [Kreck1999]),

Most of the results of this paper were obtained in the early eighties and were circulated as [Kr3]. A plan to write a monograph based on this preprint could not yet be realized. Since the theory was meanwhile used in several papers ([Be], [Da], [F-K], [F-K-V], [H-K1], [H-K2], [H-K3], [H-K4], [H-K-T], [K-L-T], [Kr4], [Kr-St1], [Kr-St2], [Kr-St3], [Kr-Tr], [Sto2], [Te], [Tr], [Wa]), I decided to publish the most important results in the present form.
